...Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens...

As I was reading Andrew's post below, I was listening to some music, and Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens came on. I thought that these two songs went along pretty well with the Stephen Crane poem that Drew put up. Give them a listen. Even if you're not a fan of gospel/soul music, I think you'll find that Naomi has a great voice and excellent musical style (it sounds as if this were a recording from 40 or 50 years ago rather than just last year)...who knows, maybe you'll dig it. It's a current release, so it can be picked up over at Daptone Records, and you can check out other classic sounding soul records there, as well.
